Back in December I picked out the new flexible working rules as one of my Top 5 changes to employment law in 2014.
The changes mean that employers won’t have to follow the current procedures and all employees (not just parents and carers) will be able to request flexible working once they have been employed for six months.
The new law was due to come in on 6th April 2014 but it’s been delayed. We don’t have a new date yet but my guess is anytime between now and October 2014.
We will keep you posted on these developments but if you have any queries about the current rules, the new rules or indeed any aspect of employment law, please do not hesitate to contact us on 020 7234 0200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
